Abstract

This review was commissioned by Skills for Care’s Workforce Innovation Programme which explores how people’s care and support needs change and how the workforce has to adapt to meet the challenges that change can present. The key questions that the evidence review aimed to address with reference to adult safeguarding and the social care workforce were:

  • What are current reported practices to support workforce intelligence, planning and development?
  • What works, and what does not work, in current practice to support workforce intelligence, planning and development?
  • What are the key characteristics of effective practice in workforce intelligence, planning and development?
  • What are the gaps in the evidence base?
